Re: Apple should step forward

Apple could really use some help with that APFS mess. As of October 2019 when I last experienced MacOS, Apple still didn't support imaging or cloning, image backup/restore, reformatting an existing partition map, or even booting from an external device when a soldered-in APFS device has a damaged partition. None of Apple's utilities had been updated to understand the difference between APFS physical and virtual volumes so they'd simply abort or do something very wrong.
